Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Add ac_add_options --enable-extensions=inspector ac_add_options --enable-inspector-apis to .mozconfig 2. start a firefox build 3. the build does not contain the dom inspector extension Expected Results: the build should result in the dom inspector extension with the firefox binary.
Ted, any particular reason you CC'd me on this bug? I'm a tad lost, I confess.
I wanted some DOMi expertise, but you're a Venkman expert, aren't you? I guess I wanted sdwilsh. Man, I'm lost.
The makefiles don't check out the extra repositories like comm-central does.
Ah, yeah. You'll need to manually checkout the inspector code. (or you could just install it from addons.mozilla.org).
Ted: I knew that the inspector code was missing from the Firefox source. I just need to know why is that so when Thunderbird and Seamonkey Suite have it and Firefox doesn't?
They explicitly pull it in client.py: http://mxr.mozilla.org/comm-central/source/client.py#425 The Firefox build has no analog to that.
